I think the only time my kids aren’t talking is when they’re asleep.
What really baffles me is the way all three of them can be sitting right next to each other, talking to me at the same time.
Do they not hear each other? And if so, do they not get that they outnumber me by a good margin?
And the million dollar question on my mind: am I the only one who experiences this?
I’m sorry to say that I’ve learned to tune out a lot of what my kids are saying, even if they’re speaking directly to me.
And so God has been working on me lately about this. Kindly, gently, as He always does. Will you join me at Satisfaction Through Christ, where I’m considering five reasons to really listen to your child?
Here’s an excerpt:
If the God of all creation —
can condescend to devote His attention to my meager utterances, completely insignificant by comparison…
just because He loves me,
how much more should I stoop a mere few inches to the little faces of my children and really listen to the heart behind their words?
